Broga Yoga coming to ATADO!!!

Hello Everyone,

We are really excited to announce our new and upcoming Broga® Yoga program, here at ATADO! If you hold a Full membership this exclusive program is included for you!

Broga starting at Atado Sept. 8, 2016

Broga starting at Atado Sept. 8, 2016

Our awesome yoga instructor has taken it upon her to travel to the heart of male-friendly yoga (Boston USA, no less…, who would have said India?) and bring back a very exciting ‘Brogram’ (I kid you not!) that includes pieces of yoga combined with HIIT and good music. Overall an inspired exercise program, design to get from just any guy to a bro. 😉

Come and join us, starting Thursday, Sept 8th (6-7pm) with a free trial class.

The 8-week program will run Thursdays, 6-7pm, starting September 15th.

Come out, give it a try!

First Atado Movie Night

Last Night (Feb 27) Atado held its First-Ever Movie Night, thanks to the engaged organization of James and the happy participation of our kids!

First-Ever Atado Movie Night

First-Ever Atado Movie Night

We had pizza, freshly made popcorn, kids & adult pop, treat bags, chips and DQ ice cream and watched two exciting movies (KungFu Panda 1 and Forbidden Kingdom). The Full HD projection onto a ~20ft screen and the 5.1 surround sound in the large space worked impressively well.

The morning started off with our regular KungFu class. Our guest enjoyed a broad introduction into KungFu, from warm-up over forms to weapons. Shifu Justin and Shifu Karen worked hard to maintain some order in the youngest group (JK/SK age). In the mean time James & Robyn prepared the food stand. With some “free styling” following the class we eventually started the first movie and the first round of popcorn, drinks & snacks.

After the first movie we held an activity break while the pizza arrived. With its distribution we started the second movie around 2:30, enjoying the DQ ice cream and more snacks until the event closed around 4:30.

This event was great fun and we already had several request for a repeat. The fundraising efforts help us keep the club running, so look for further announcements!


Mark your calendar:    April 22

The WRDSB will have a PD Day and Atado will be open for a PD-Camp-Day!

Atado Photo Shoot

Over the course of the last few weeks Atado had the pleasure of working with Eric Franzkowiak to get some professional pictures and video clips taken of our Kung Fu instructor team.
